I was so excited that Hannah was coming to visit!
Hannah arrived on Thursday evening and we headed out to get dinner, well once she finally got here. For some reason traffic was a nightmare and took her 2 hours to get from the airport. That trip normally takes 20 minutes, 30 minutes max. Maybe it was graduation, maybe it was residual traffic from the earlier Giants game, or maybe it was just a stroke of bad luck.
We worked from home on Friday, I love that both of us work from home and can do as we please. I suggested that we go to happy hour at Prospect, which is only about 2 blocks from my house. They have some phenomenal cocktails on happy hour that are seasonal. We both had 2 cocktails, one was a Springtime Rickey (Gin, Strawberry, Mint, Lime, Soda Water) and one was a Good Start (Vodka, Grapefruit, Lemon, Orange, Mint ). It felt like old times when we used to pretend we were grown-ups. Turns out, we’re still pretending!!!

From there, I suggested we head to Jax winery. I’ve been wanting to go there for quite some time, but they’re only open for a couple of hours on Wed, Thur and Friday evenings. I walk past it longingly when I do pass by and it’s open because the atmosphere is just so quaint. They have little fire pits and some greenery.
We headed there and stumbled upon a gold mine. The wine was just SO FREAKING GOOD.
Barrels of wine!
It was super chilly that day, so we hung out under the heated lamps. Nothing like experiencing winter in May. We drank wine and gossiped the evening away.
They are dog friendly too!
